Response to Spider Jerusalem (Reply #12)

Wed Dec 19, 2012, 12:09 PM

15. Read the PA & VT constitutions that use those words. Stevens acknowledged those constitutions.

 

SCOTUS also said "Neither is it in any manner dependent upon that instrument for its existence."

The meaning is clear, a right exists with or without our Constitution or the PA & VT constitutions.

You can try to reinterpret that any way you wish but it always comes out the same, words on paper do not create a right and words on paper do not destroy a right.

As inalienable/unalienable rights, the citizens of PA & VT could not have given any of their declared rights away when they ratified our Constitution.

RKBA is indisputably an inalienable/unalienable right.
